Creed & Anthem


I would be true for there are those who trust me
I would be pure for there are those who care
I would be strong for there is much to suffer
I would be brave for there is much to dare (2x)

I would be friend of all - the foe, the friendless
I would be giving and forget the gift
I would be humble, for I know my weakness;
I would look up and love and laugh and lift (2x)

I would be prayerful through each busy moment
I would be constantly in touch with God
I would be tuned to hear his slightest whisper
I would have faith to tread the path Christ trod. (2x)
We have adopted the words of the hymn written by Howard Walter as our creed. The words embody the ideals and standards the school has set for our pupils. In every line, there is high idealism and a challenge to courageous living. The school creed is sung on alternate Fridays before school starts. 


O Let our youthful voices ring
With all their joyfulness
In praise and gladness let us sing
Of Paya Lebar MGS (2x)

Here may we seek all wisdom, truth
And ways of kindliness
Through all the years of golden youth
At Paya Lebar MGS (2x)

So when we leave its sheltering walls
We go with fearlessness
Enriched to face life's greatest call
By Paya Lebar MGS (2x)

Lord bless our school our dear PLMGS
With peace and love and joy and grace
Our PL-Lites we send to lead and bless
From Paya Lebar MGS (2x)

Now let us pray and learn and trust and obey
To serve Him in every way
Glory to God we give and pray
For Paya Lebar MGS (2x) 

The first 3 verses of the School Anthem were written by Miss Nancy Coggan who taught in the school from 1955-1957.The 4th and 5th verses were written by Mrs Winnie Tan, retired principal of PLMGS. The School Anthem is sung every Tuesday.
